the ivy crown "after so much red wine" (1999)

one of the forgotten bands in michigan's 90s emo pantheon. ivy crown hailed from east lansing and existed between 1997-2002, i got to see em play once, in a basement in kalamazoo with wallside and quixote...very good live.....their style was on the lighter side of the indie-emo spectrum, but not totally polished like, say, a band like king for a day or jimmy eat world......"calling back the taurus" is the best song on this cd and reminds me a little bit of current for some reason, which is a very good thing.......the rest of the tracks are a bit more in the cursive/mineral vein, melodic sunny day driving of those bands that just never caught on for some reason...........check it out!
